HC Deb 23 January 1967 vol 739 c196W
80. Mr. Bidwell

asked the Minister of Transport if she is aware of the British Railways' and London Transport's withdrawal of rail travel concessions to young employees, as a result of the prices and incomes standstill; and, in view of the adverse effects on young people taking poorer paid apprenticeships and long-term training jobs, if she will give general directions that the prices and incomes standstill should not apply in these circumstances.

Mr. John Morris

In July 1966 the Transport Tribunal accepted proposals by the two Boards to withdraw these concessions in the London Passenger Transport Area. However in deference to the Government's Prices and Incomes Policy no fares increases have yet been made.
